Hydrogen Production, Storage & Infrastructure

A Global Leader in Hydrogen Production

Canada is one of the largest hydrogen producers in the world. Canadian companies have developed technologies to produce hydrogen cleanly and economically using fossil fuels, methanol, biomass, renewable energy resources (solar, wind, hydroelectric) or from industrial by-product waste hydrogen capture.

The pathway to net-zero emissions by 2050 requires substantially wider hydrogen use in existing applications and an update of hydrogen and hydrogen-based fuels for new uses in heavy industry, heavy-duty road transport, shipping and aviation.

According to the IEA, global demand for hydrogen continues to rise and is almost entirely supplied from fossil fuels, with 6% of global natural gas and 2% of global coal going to hydrogen production.

 

Green Hydrogen

Electricity from renewable sources is used to electrolyze water and separate the hydrogen and oxygen.

Blue Hydrogen

Produced using natural gas
via "steam reformation" - most of the GHG emissions are captured and stored.

Turquoise Hydrogen

Produced using natural gas
via "pyrolisis" by separating methane into hydrogen and solid carbon dioxide.

Grey Hydrogen

Produced using natural gas via "steam reformation", but with no carbon capture storage.

The Canadian Hydrogen Convention will feature exhibitors showcasing the latest innovation and technology in hydrogen production, storage and energy infrastructure.

"Governments need to take rapid actions to lower the barriers that are holding low-carbon hydrogen back from faster growth, which will be important if the world is to have a chance of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050." - Fatih Birol, IEA Executive Director
